CEA and Faurecia partner on fuel cells

Faurecia, one of the global big names among auto industry suppliers, and the CEA French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission have signed a five year agreement to collaborate in a research and development program on fuel cells. Faurecia are convinced that this technology, which offers large autonomy and fast refueling times, will coexist with battery electric vehicles.

 

The auto industry supplier will benefit from more than two decades of CEA research and expertise in fuel cells and other key components such as bipolar plates. Combined with Faurecia’s expertise in fluid dynamics and catalysis, the Group will be able to develop, mass-produce and commercialize a high performance fuel cell that meets auto industry standards.
